Athletic Therapy

What is Athletic Therapy?

Certified Athletic Therapists are best known for their quick-thinking, on-field emergency care of professional and elite athletes. They are the first to respond when someone gets hurt and are experts at injury assessment and rehabilitation. Whether on the field or in the clinic, it’s that same mix of on-site care and active rehabilitation experience that makes Athletic Therapists so effective in treating the musculoskeletal (muscles, bones, and joints) injuries of all Canadians.

Our rehabilitation focus is on using the most innovative techniques to facilitate your recovery from injury. Our ultimate goal is to get you back to sports and activity as quickly and safely as possible. At Prime, we aim to get you faster, stronger, and fitter than before you came in, and will tailor your rehabilitation to your specific sport, lifestyle, and needs as an individual. Basic exercises and treatments won’t cut it. We help you do more!
